Day 1 of The 30 Day Shred

Monday, April 18, 2011

I thought that this would challenge me and kick my butt. I was absolutely 100% correct. WOW.

I don't have any 3lb weights, only 5lb so that's what I used. However I could not finish all repetitions with the weights. I also struggled with the side lunges as I'd never done those before. The static lunges were a challenge too. I kept putting my knee too far over the ankle and could tell I was doing it wrong. At that point I just set the weights to the side and really tried to focus on getting the lunge done the correct way as to avoid injury.

I am sweating like you read about. Sometimes I find I have difficulty working up a sweat. Not today folks. Michaels really pushes you and the circuit training of strength, cardio, abs, had me sweating as the second circuit started. My legs feel a little like jello.

WHEW!!!! Off to shower and get ready for my day. For anyone else out there who started today, what was your experience like? GREAT JOB FOR TACKLING DAY ONE! I've been told the second day is the hardest. HOWEVER WE ARE COMMITTED TO ROCKING DAY TWO OUT FOLKS! WOOHOO!!!!!

    i've got 5lb weights too and they're too heavy for me to use for this workout. so i've been using bottles of gatorade until i can get lighter ones. the lunges hurt my knees at first but then i discovered i was doing them wrong. i just stuck my butt out further and used my leg muscles, not my knees to get back up. much better. good luck on day 2!

    Good job Raz! I did L1 D1 for both Shred It With Weights and 30 Day Shred. My body feels like jello. It was so tough. I am determined to stick to it this time though. I may not be online again today, so good luck with day 2! Keep it up!

    Awesome job! I'll confess, Jillian Michaels terrifies me. That woman is intimidating! I haven't tried any of her workouts yet because of it.
